Random notes and a whole lotta perfects
Perfection #1: First of all, David’s Spanish is perfectly suited for O Ven, O Ven Emanuel. The softness of this romantic language allows him even more vocal versatility. When listening to both the English and Spanish versions, I find David singing in a lower tone than the English one, there’s a depth and richness that I’ve never heard anywhere else.
Perfection #2: His pitch is perfect on every note and the key he chooses to sing this in is David at his finest, there is no straining whatsoever and he sounds relaxed and powerful and controlled all at the same time.
Perfection #3: His tone is sublime. Even on the higher notes, he glides effortlessly in and out of them.
Perfection #4: To me, this is his most perfect recording where the production never overshadows the lyrics but helps set the otherworldly mood. And when David sings the lower notes, it is pure heaven. He glides up and down the scale with such ease. Even his rolled r’s show no hesitation, they are smooth as perfect silk.
Perfection #5: I love how the production and the foreign language transcend me to a different time and place. It’s haunting and reassuring at the same time. I have never felt David’s vocals so perfectly matched with an accompaniment as on this song.
Perfection #6: There’s an all over quality in his voice which is, you guessed it, … perfect. Maybe it’s because he’s holding back a little, concentrating on the pronunciation of each word, I honestly don’t know, but imho, when you compare his English version to this Spanish one, you can hear a difference.
I hope he chooses to do this in concert, perhaps singing part in English and part in Spanish.
So librarians, editors, and y’all with big word vocabularies (the rest of you can dust off your thesauruses) find this ol’ gal a word that describes this song, other than perfect, perfectly.
